Reverse engineering packages consisting of hardware and software have traditionally been quite expensive. What’s special about MeasureXL is that it is fully integrated with Rhino 6 for Windows to create an affordable Scan to CAD solution. Build CAD models fast! Data taken from MeasureXL shows up immediately inside Rhino to create accurate CAD models in lesser time than designing them from scratch.
MeasureXL portable CMM consists of a wireless probe and a factory-calibrated optical tracker for an out of the box accurate tracking experience. There’s no need to calibrate the unit which makes it easy to set up and start taking measurements. The 3D digitizer measures wirelessly, giving you the freedom to measure. It doesn’t have any movement restrictions compared to traditional portable CMMs with articulated arms. MeasureXL uses a probe so it is not affected by environmental conditions such as lighting.

Bricsys®, a Hexagon company, has partnered with Robert McNeel & Associates of Seattle, Washington, to leverage their Rhino.Inside® initiative. Bricsys is using Rhino.Inside® to bring the full power of the Rhinoceros NURBS modeler to BricsCAD® BIM V20.
Rhino integration enables a new workflow that fills the gap between early-stage conceptual design and Building Information Modeling. Using Rhino’s built-in Grasshopper visual programming language, users can create parametric concept models inside of BricsCAD® BIM.
"Algorithmic modeling tools are often used in the conceptual design phase before BIM tools are involved in the design process. The BricsCAD – Grasshopper connection bridges this gap. Then, using the A.I. functionality in BricsCAD BIM, it’s simple to convert the Rhino model into a full BIM in just a few seconds," commented Tiemen Strobbe, BIM Product Owner at Bricsys®.
Once a design concept is approved, the Rhino model can be “baked” in BricsCAD® BIM, generating native BricsCAD® geometry. This geometry can be converted into a full BIM model, including automatic classification of model elements, using BIMIFY, and the automatic attachment of compositions using the AUTOMATCH tool.

EcoHouse is a small house project located on a plot very close to the beach, on the island of Florianopolis in Brazil. It seeks to minimize the impact of construction, in interference with the landscape, as well as the materials used. Except for the foundation (reinforced concrete), the whole house was built with autoclave processed pine wood and some walls lined with plasterboard.
The construction process was wood frame, which allowed a light building, but with high quality in both thermal and acoustic comfort. A natural drainage system gives the land the possibility to “dialogue” with the water table which, due to the proximity of the beach, is very high. The villa has a green roof and a large tropical garden on the ground. Seen from above, you see a large green spot. Thus, we do not interfere with the natural process of the rainwater cycle.
